Combining “committed performances, sweet music and charm”, this multi-media production tells the story of a ghost town in Northern Ontario and the small group of Mennonite settlers who attempt to settle the land. Seen through the eyes of 12 year old Anna Wiens, REESOR tells of a forgotten part of Canadian history and Mysteries of the North. (
